A quick answer to most questions and silly answers. People who talk about thick or foldable phones, plastic screens, size of front screen 4in, etc. have to be realistic:
1. Ever tried to use a Nokia Communicatior from 13 years back. E90 - communicators? Ever check the screen on those? If you dont remember, then this phone will be think and useless.
2. The 4In front screen is just a little smaller and slimmer than the original Iphone. All loved that phone.
3. We as humans 20 years ago, wanted smaller and smaller phones, now we want the biggest. So to have a hugh screen which folds into a small compact version, is not bad.
4. This phone is expensive to make. The screen i am sure is not easy to develop and reproduce. All foldables have been expensive. If anyone owns a mercedes, why do you own one? isnt it too much, why couldnt you buy a honda?
I have had this phone for a 1 year now. My review:
1. Beats my note 20 ultra for battery life.
2. 512 is plenty of space for me.
3. Media is fantastic on this.
4. The small screen is good for 1 handed use and quick browsing.
5. The durability is beyond what i expected. I have dropped my phone a few times. A few knicks, but no damage to any of the screens.
6. Its perfect for my work (digital business). Can do a whole host of things at the same time.
People have to stop complaining about price. Every single thing you own in your house; there are two types of. Expensive version and cheap version. Dyson hairdryer and cheap hairdryer; alienware computer or cheap computer; normal tv or samsung 100in.
So with this phone, you either buy a normal phone or this one. The fold users dont look at you and say yours is shit.
If you have the money buy a new one, if you can find a 2nd hand one, its worth it. If its too expensive buy a phone you like. There are 100's out there.
Thats my peace. Any comments?
Panda eyes, 13 Nov 2019How are you finding the fold. Do you have to be super careful handling it Great concept feels sturdy however screen is ridiculously sensitive
Even putting it in your pocket is a hazard for dust for it to get damaged.
When I first got it in November last year had it a week screen managed to get a small indent
Ended up having to pay for the repair of $200 as the damage was not covered under warranty
Just recently a few hours ago I watch a line come up pixelated it has a small indent not sure how it got there
Put is even if you look after it. It's very easy to damage

Luxor, 13 Nov 2019Your first time looking at pictures on AMOLED screen? Hahaha. It naturally look to have a more... moreHas nothing to do with the camera, though (which is what my reply is in regards to). The photo remains unchanged with the same unique hash identifier regardless of the display technology it is viewed upon.
The differences between how the photo looks on AMOLED vs LCD isn't the argument here, camera quality is. So, I stand by my statement that Samsung devices have great cameras.
Mobilephil, 11 Nov 2019Sorry but as a fold user I find this review nothing short of a nit picking adventure!How are you finding the fold. Do you have to be super careful handling it

Considering the 2k price tag and how long it's been in development, hopefully there won't be any issues

It naturally look to have a more punchy color than LCD. Transfer that photo you took from Note 10 to any phone with LCD and look at it. It immediately lose the vibrant colors.
samsung only mistake the screen isnt durable, and front is full screen like it should, and bigger battery to compesate the bigger screene
Nope, WAY too expensive...even for a so called revolutionary device.
If/when the technology matures, and, the price comes down (which means a ton of Chinese knock offs), I MIGHT take another look. One 6-7" inch screen is big enough for 99% of my use during the day. If I wanted to walk around with a tablet/laptop, I would do that instead.
Adul Al Salami Kebab, 11 Nov 2019Why not simply use 2 screens? The fold idea seem like a disaster waiting to happen... A disaster? Try dope as hell, son! LOL! All kidding aside, this device is truly one of a kind and Samsung did only one thing wrong in my opinion. That front screen is way too small. At least make it wider so I can type with my "Man Hands". With the case on, I can't get to the edge of the phone screen when I need to. They don't want you to put a case on it so you can drop it and they can make more money. 4.6"? Try at least another inch on that and we have darn near perfection. Please don't knock it until you've got one in your hands.

JND83, 11 Nov 2019i guess it will be perfect with penS-Pen on the Fold will be possible with Ultra Thin Glass that Samsung is currently procuring for the next Galaxy Folds.
It's very impressive that we basically haven't heard about any real issues with the final version, so they must be holding up pretty well. And they're selling like hotcakes.
the price is just too much...
But with the fold in design you can call Huawei is a "chicken"
